Announcing the launch of

Dear Fellow teachers,

I am delighted to announce the launch of At last! We've been working to achieve this for a number of years.

My purpose in creating this site has been to provide useful support for teachers. Hopefully, we can pool our experiences, materials and ideas to create a community of teachers worldwide.

The site isn't just for teachers who use Azar textbooks; it's for any teacher using any materials who is interested in any way in the role of grammar in second language instruction.

Click on the link below and you'll find:

a discussion forum moderated by Maria Spelleri

a blog by Richard Firsten ("The Grammar Guy")

various writings and videos of mine about teaching ESL/EFL
(I'd love to hear your responses!)

Teacher-created grammar exercises that can be printed and modified for class use.

Communicative games and activities (including Suzanne Woodward's entire book Fun with Grammar as well as other class-activity materials created by Maria Spelleri)

Printable vocabulary worksheets (from Rachel Spack Koch, the co-writer of the Azar CD-ROMs and moderator of the Grammar Exchange Q&A forum)

song lessons designed to reinforce grammar structures using well known songs
(from University of Pittsburgh teacher, Patti Spinner)

grammar explanations as presented on the Azar CD-ROMs and teacher's guides for the Azar series
